***As of October 4, 2016, the Posner Center Immersive Telepresence equipment is unavailable.***
Media Technology Services provides an immersive telepresence service for enhanced videoconferencing. Supported by the Qatar Foundation, the Pittsburgh and Qatar campuses are linked by a Cisco Tandberg Telepresence System. The Pittsburgh facility is located in the Posner Center, and a comparable facility is installed on the Carnegie Mellon Qatar campus.
Telepresence systems are redefining the remote meeting experience with visually-collaborative technologies that give remote participants the sensation of being at the same table. The system is installed in a specially-designed room where acoustics and lighting enhance the immersive quality of the telepresence experience.
